If you have been waiting to see what the Winnipeg Blue Bombers new stadium is going to look like when completed, wait no longer.

On the Winnipeg Blue Bombers website, a new 3D Seating Chart has been posted, letting fans take a look into the new 33,000 seat CFL stadium. And it looks great.

After taking a look through the virtual stadium I am extremely excited about the new venue. It's a modern-looking facility like none other in the prairies and looks to become a source of pride in Winnipeg. The stadium simply looks fantastic.

I was one to say that $190 million for a stadium sounds very cheap, considering that other cities such as Regina, Vancouver and Quebec City are all building or looking to build venues for sports at much higher price.

However, based on what can be seen so far of the stadium: $190 million is just enough to build one heck of a football stadium.

Of course I'm just looking at a computer screen and haven't had a chance yet to go into the stadium myself, but I'm not worried about what I am going to see when I do go to my first game of the upcoming season.

One thing that fans won't be excited about is the ticket prices, by holding the mouse over sections of seats, the season ticket price rises significantly. Some season tickets are at a price of over $1,500, and anywhere else in the stadium costs more than double what they currently are at Canad Inns Stadium.
